Save the date and wedding website. 

id also suggest that your FI mention that things fill up quickly the next time he talks to them/emails/texts/whatever 🙂

I’d start with a phone call.

Save the dates and invites a great, fun details and work well for a more conventional guest list.  However, for an international group with a lot more arrangements and considerations to make, I’d call them right away to talk thought the plan.  Then proceed from there as needed.  You can still send them the invites along with when you’d send them to other guests, but they’ll be more of a formality then.

My DH and I had a destination wedding on short-ish notice.  Our very close family was all informed in person of the details because we needed to make sure that things worked for them (didn’t want to have a DW if they weren’t on board).  For everyone else we sent out an email save the date wtih a link to our website (which I completed in two nights) that had all the necessary info included.  

I still sent formal invites later, but it was a formaility.  I already knew if most people were coming to the wedding at that point.
